achieving spiritual enlightenment WITHOUT drugs/alcohol

Postby catherine » Sun Jan 05, 2014 4:52 pm

I want to grow,
I have been compleatly sober for 3 years,
doing AA things, sponsering people, conventions,
boards, taking step workshops, ect.
I want spiritual growth without drugs and alcohol.

so I meditate, I eat a raw vegan diet (on and off 7 years)
I pratice lucid dreaming, ect.
Yet so many people I talk to about opening the third eye, mention shrooms, or DMT,
Things that i dont want to try.
How can i stay sober and (I'll admit it) be a hippy at the same time?

First, change the people you are talking to.

Second, what is your definition of "being a hippy"? Just what is it that you want to be?
Step 1: I can't
Step 2: He can
Step 3: I think I'll let him

Greetings, and welcome...

I'm with Lali here. If people are suggesting things you don't feel comfortable with doing then you may need to talk to different people. We are only as strong as people we surround ourselves with. And I know a few hippies. It seems to be common in my line of work, go figure. One, and his wife, dabbles in everything and it shows. The other has done no mind altering substances to my knowledge. I doubt there is any hippy code that requires such things. To me it seems more about the attitude and lifestyle, but what do I know!

Good luck. Keep up the sobriety work.
